Homeopathic Treatment of Bullous Pemphigoid

Bullous pemphigoid is an autoimmune skin disorder where fluid-filled blisters appear on the skin. It is a rare condition mostly seen in older adults over the age of 60 to 70 years. Its occurrence in children and younger adults is very rare. Homeopathic medicines for bullous pemphigoid help moderate the overactive immune system. These remedies work in two ways – they help prevent further progression of the disease and help heal the existing blisters and manage the associated itching. Natrum Mur, Anacardium Orientale, and Dulcamara are the top homeopathic remedies used to treat blisters on the skin in bullous pemphigoid.

Homeopathic remedies for bullous pemphigoid.

Typically, our immune system functions to fight against the bacteria, virus and other harmful foreign invaders that enter the human body. They fight infection by producing antibodies. Autoimmune disorder refers to a group of diseases where the immune system of the body starts to destroy the body’s healthy tissue out of a misdirected response (in the absence of any real infection.) In bullous pemphigoid, the immune system begins to damage the skin and lead to blister formation. The particular factor that triggers the autoimmune response in bullous pemphigoid is not clear, but it seems that certain medicines (like etanercept and sulfasalazine), ultraviolet light therapy and radiation therapy may trigger it.

Homeopathic Treatment of Bullous Pemphigoid

Homeopathic medicines can help in treating bullous pemphigoid in a safe, gentle manner. The best suited homeopathic medicine for bullous pemphigoid is selected depending upon the individual case. Prescribing a homeopathic medicine in case of bullous pemphigoid requires a complete analysis and evaluation. Hence medicines for bullous pemphigoid should be taken after consultation with a homeopathic physician and self-medication should be avoided.

Signs and Symptoms of Bullous Pemphigoid

The main presenting feature of bullous pemphigoid is the formation of large blisters on the skin. The diameter of the blisters may be up to 5 cm. The blister contains clear fluid, and when touched, it does not rupture easily. Sometimes slight blood and itching may be present in the blisters. The itching may start a few weeks before blister forms. The blisters mainly appear on the lower abdomen, thighs, and arms. The blisters are located along the skin folds. In severe cases, the blisters may form inside the mouth.

In some cases, a hive-like rash appears. Bullous pemphigoid is not infectious and does not spread by direct skin to skin contact to a healthy person. A severe complication that can arise in bullous pemphigoid is sepsis from infection of the ruptured blisters.

  13. Ben Mulder says:

    Good day, Dr Sharma.
    I am living in Edmonton, Canada, and am 86 years old. The first 85 years I were blessed with very good health but it all changed at the beginning of 2019 when I were diagnosed with Bullous Pemphigoid. Prednisone was prescribed and I started off with 60 mg a day. It stunted the illness and I tapered the medication off to 5 mg. As soon as I were down to 5 mg it flared up again, and I had to increase the dosage. (At this stage I were still in South Africa. My wife and I emigrated in November 2019.) I were desperate to discontinue Prednisone due to the side effects eg pre diabetes, thin skin, swollen lower limbs, weak muscles, diminishing eyesight etc. I visited a Dermatologist in Edmonton who prescribed Taro Clobetasol ointment which I have been using in conjunction with Prednisone since February. It assists, but the outbreaks continue. No more space to continue my story. Therefore, please help!

  20. Hello Sir,

    My mother is suffering from bullous pemphigoid and because of corticosteroids her calcium levels has gone down and diagnosed with osteoporosis. Hence in order to avoid corticosteroids we have approached a homeopathic doctor and he gave medicines for one month saying that the medicines will trigger severe blisters for 2-3 months postpone which the disease will be cured. As he said too many blisters we’re formed on my mother’s body and she is unable to bear itching and pain. Doctor says that it is expected and she should bear the pain and itching for couple of months so that the disease can be cured. But I’m unable to see my mother’s suffering. Please guide if this is the right approach. Thanks
